Papers are used in an unfriendly and anti-environment manner since trees are ruthlessly cut out to fulfill our need to write and communicate. When E-mails started, people thoughts letter-writing would become a thing of the past. But the pristine glory of writing and receiving letters is a tradition is still upheld now with a unique status. One wishes to get some means of saving trees and also the expense on papers.
Just to fulfill such an idea, the scientists in the UK’s Cambridge University have invented a way to remove ink from printed papers. Hence, they could be easily reused and it will environmentally benefit by reducing 80% of the carbon emissions that goes in the process of recycling. The method uses a special laser-based technique. One might feel satisfied over saving trees by recycling papers, but this “un-printer” machine can actually save a tree in the first place being cut off. The forests will not disappear and the natural habitat will survive keeping the ecosystem safe.
Hence, it an easy and useful skip in the process of saving environment through this “un-printer” machine. The paper comes out as good as new according to a report in New Scientist. However, it requires a specific laser with non-abrasive method to remove the ink and make it come out just as new from the other side. If the invention proves successful upon further testing, it might just be the thing that every office should have to cut costs and save environment.
